Saunacast: A Huge Announcement From Mommypotamus & Wellness Mama

If you know me, you probably know my friend Heather of Mommypotamus. We’re known for hanging out in the sauna together (usually over a glass of wine), talking about all of the highs and lows of blogging, parenting, building community, and life with kids.

I always joke that Heather and I think so much alike we must share a brain. Well, we’ve hatched an idea together and today we plan to share it with all of you!

We can’t wait to hear what you think and hope you’ll be as excited as we are!

Episode Highlights With Mommypotamus

  • thoughts about the way we were raised… and what we want to pass on to our kids
  • our favorite books that have helped shape our parenting and life goals
  • the reason academic success isn’t all it’s cracked up to be
  • how we found out failure isn’t something to fear
  • our view on cell phones and kids (maybe not the most popular)
  • the highs and lows of blogging, and what we’ve learned since this all began
  • why being vulnerable is hard but worth it
  • how we’re navigating big life changes… and what we’re finding out as we go

This podcast is brought to you by Rael, the new organic and natural feminine care brand that is completely redefining the world of menstrual products. Their three female founders came together after experiencing a lack of healthy and functional period pads and liners available most places. During their research, they found that pads and liners manufactured and sold by big drugstore brands were actually often made with extremely toxic ingredients like acetone, Styrofoam, and other carcinogens that you don’t want on your skin and especially not in a delicate place! They founded Rael, a company on a mission to give women safe and healthy alternatives that don’t sacrifice comfort or performance. Their pads and liners are sustainably made with 100% organic cotton, and they’ve become an Amazon Bestseller just a few months post-launch. They’ve since expanded their collection with biodegradable tampons, natural cleansers and wipes, menstrual underwear, and even a Period Beauty line featuring facial masks and acne patches designed specifically to alleviate hormonal skin issues. They’re excited to offer Wellness Mama listeners an exclusive discount to experience the difference firsthand: visit GetRael.com to learn more and enjoy 15% off your first purchase with code WELLNESSMAMA.

This podcast is sponsored by Thrive Market. Thrive is my source for many organic and natural foods on a budget. They carry many of my favorite brands like Primal Kitchen, Kettle and Fire, Mary’s Gone Crackers, and Simple Mills at a big discount. But my favorite thing is their line of Thrive Market brand products which are amazing quality and at a big discount off of name brands. Our family always stocks up on things like almond butter, coconut aminos, canned tuna and sardines, avocado oil mayo, raisins, nuts, grain free granola, spices, pasta sauce, chia seeds and all of our other pantry staples. Thanks to Thrive, we save money and always have what we need on hand. Just for being a Wellness Mama Podcast listener (thank you for that!), you can get an extra 25% off your first purchase plus a free 30-day membership to Thrive Market at Thrivemarket.com/Katie

  1. OMG! I am so excited that you to are joining forces!!!!!!! <3 Joined together, you two will take this to the next level! I hope to try and become pregnant in the next year, so I will need tons of help with products, and making my home a safe and nontoxic place to live.

  2. Yes!!! I have been waiting for this! You two are the first sites I look at when I need a recipe or have a question about some random crunchy thing.

  3. Loved, I love you both, learned a lot and now I can go in just one site. God blessed you bothe and your family. Kate and Heather you deserve the best.

  4. What a good idea! I enjoyed this podcast but have one suggestion- mommypotamus’s microphone is either not as good quality as Katie’s or maybe it had to do with proximity to the microphone- in any case her voice quality was not as clear and had an unpleasant tinny sound. It’s not her voice- just a problem with the recording.

  5. Awesome–you are two of my favorite bloggers!! Keep up your awesome work, and thank you for all you do!!

  6. Love love love this episode ! Wish I lived closer to you both to be in real life friends !!

  7. Katie, I’ve heard you talk about finding a place to live that values community… How did you research places and find the place you ultimately decided to move to? I’m in the process of finding a place to settle my family and want to know what to look for in a town or community. I bought the book Playborhood, but haven’t gotten it yet.

    • It happened somewhat accidentally for us and wasn’t as intentional as it might seem…
